Texture: Heavy, white texture. Full coverage with more than one layer. Dries permanent with a matte finish. Similar to chalkboard paint. Application: can be applied with a palette knife, texture tool, or a brush. Works well with stencils. Will provide a slight resist to non-permanent color products. Heavy gesso is great for covering / preparing a background for art mediums. Air dry or speed up drying time with a heat tool. Decorate: great for painting flat surfaces. Neutralizes colors on previously painted surfaces to provide a new painting base. Embellishments: apply with a brush and let dry before coloring. Fantastic for collage and journaling, fortifies the surface and prevents soaking. Customize: great for mixing with acrylic paint to create a white-washed, colored gesso.
